So, I was volunteering on a 100 mile bike event this past weekend (up at 4:30 am yesterday!!! ). Owning a pick up truck ,I am a popular person for lugging things around.
Anyway, I was in charge of an aid station on the Silverthorne to Copper Mtn bike path. I am sitting down when I see
a person with trekking poles, nylon pants, trail runners and a light pack...on a bike path!
Asked the gentleman if he was hiking the CDT. He was a bit surprised and said yes. I introduced myself as "Paul Mags". He smiled and said he "knew me" from Yogi's guidebook and posting on the forums. Turns out the hiker was Colter (who posts on WB every so often)!
Naturally we talked trail (yep..a lot of snow up there this year!), I loaded him up with oranges, bananas, brownies, etc. Talk about a small world!
Looking up at the very snow covered divide, I'd be taking the low route, too!
Anyway, I had a great weekend (if tiring!). And seeing a CDT hiker that I had talked to previously made it cool, too
